Fruits of Labor

Hello Everyone!

The time has come to share some photos of the gourds I have been working on for the past few weeks. I had hoped to post them before Christmas, but did not get a free moment. Well, here they are! Let me know what you think.























These have already been sold at the Christmas craft shows I attended this holiday season. The gourd on the bottom photo made with the pine straw, was my very first one. It was sold to an uncle of one of the vendors at the Farmer's Market. She told me that the gourd would either be displayed at his home in Florida or his vacation home in Asheville, NC. I'm so excited now that I'm tracking the whereabouts of my creations! I have gourds scattered about in North Carolina, Florida, Colorado,(Sky4Kat) and I just got word last week, one of my gourd birdfeeders would be going to India! How exciting!


Be Encouraged!

Hi my Friend,
Wow they have turned out beautiful. That is so great that they are being sent all over. I hope you are signing them. Thanks for the complements on our tree. I have some blue and white garland and neither was long enough so I spread it out. We went to an artifical tree about 3 years ago. I was hesitant at 1st but love it now. No alergy problems, worries over dry tree, the mess of the needles. As much as I like the fresh I love this tree and wouldn't trade it at all. For the most part the rest of it was decorated with hand made ornaments and a few that have been given to us over the years. I put the one from my ornament exchange in the front center. We had a wonderful time with our family and friends. Hope yours was blessed too.

PS. I might been interested in getting one of your bird house ones for a friend here. Let me know some prices and what you have available I will check to make sure that she feeds the birds I think she does. (Then you'd have one in Oregon) :)
